Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Hypercolor Brow and Hair Powder

Anastasia Beverly Hills has recently released three new colors for the Hypercolor Brow and Hair Powder line: Red-Licious, Lola Lilac, and Royal. They can be applied on the brows and/or hair for a temporary color, without the use of dyes and bleach. The Hypercolor Powders are quite fun! I love the ease of use and temporary gratification of color. To apply on the brows, use an angled brush. On the hair, rub the powder on the tips or streak of hair!

I used Red-Licious on myself! So pretty! The powders are very pigmented, so you can make the color as light or bright as you want. I recommend using gloves with this because it can get really messy! The color washes off easily. My only drawbacks are, the color rubs off the clothes and skin (neck & shoulders). Although, I heard to use hairspray to seal in the powder, I still found it to rub off. It can be very messy and powders flying all over the place, but I guess that is what you expect for a powder right? However, the end results are definitely worth it! 

**UPDATE** Please thoroughly wash out the color on your hair!! Some color left over transferred on to my clothes and pillows (even though I thought I got all of the color out). The Hypercolor Powders disappeared after a wash in the washing machine, so it did not stain.

New Lipstick Pick-ups!

It has been a while since I purchased a new lipsticks so I thought I would treat myself! =) I chose Mac's "Up The Amp" and from their All About Orange Collection, "Tangerine Dream." 

Tangerine Dream:

I love orange-y, coral colors so I just had to buy something from the All About Orange Collection. Sadly, my local Mac counter only had two shades left. "Tangerine Dream" is a shade of orange I don't have so I had to pick it up! I applies very sheer. I do need to mute out my lips with concealer/foundation before applying the color because my lips are too dark. In addition, pick up a matching lip gloss, that won't erase the beautiful color.

Up The Amp:

I always gravitate toward nudes, pinks, and corals. I wanted a wild color...and "Up The Amp" is certainly the most wildest color I own lol. It applies so creamy and comfortable on the lips. I can't wait to wear this!

Catwalk Eye Shadow Palette Pictorial

I recently received Anastasia Beverly Hills' NEW Catwalk Eye Shadow Palette. My first impressions about the palette was the beautiful warm colors. I gravitate towards warm tones, so I knew I was going to love it! It comes with 10 eye shadows with both shimmery and matte colors. I actually think this is a must have palette. I love how it is versatile, so you can create neutral and smokey eye looks, blendability is great, and it is a reasonable price ($29). This palette is available at and at Ulta in July!

Review: Glamour Doll Eyes

Hello Beauties,

I was recently asked to do a review of Glamour Doll Eyes (GDE) eye shadow pigments. I chose six colors from their entire collection: Martini Olive, Jailhouse Jumpsuit, Undead, Chocoholic, Bare Naked, and Lover's Lane. They had so many colors I wanted to try, ranging from vibrant to neutrals, so it was hard to only pick 6!  I was impressed with the quality, blendability, and texture of the pigments. I love how GDE has both matte and shimmery pigments. I'm so used to seeing shimmery pigments, so it is nice to see a line that carried some matte finishes.

Urban Decay Vice Palette "Chaos" Pictorial

Hey beauties,

One of my followers requested a pictorial for one of my older looks I posted a while ago on Instagram, so I tried my best to re-create the look! I used the color "Chaos" from UD's Vice Palette. I used Chaos alone because it is such a beautiful blue, I wanted to highlight the color!

Step 1: Apply eye primer all over the lid and brow bone. I use UD's Eye Primer Potion. With a Mac 217 brush, blend "Laced" on to the crease.

Step 2: Pack "Chaos" on to the lid using UD's Shadow brush. Apply the color below the crease because we will blend the color.

Step 3: Take the 217 brush, and diffuse "Chaos," following the natural fold of the eye. Although "Chaos" is a gorgeous color, I find it hard to work with. You will need to re-apply the color on the lid because it tends to disappear as you blend it out to the crease.

Step 4: Line the lower lash line with a Sigma E30 brush.

Step 5: Line the waterline with UD 24/7 Glide-On eye pencil "Perversion." With a Mac 227 brush, apply "Anonymous" all over the brow bone. Then highlight the inner tear duct with "Echo Beach."

Step 6: Apply mascara and your favorite lashes! I use Benefit's They're Real mascara and Select Lash S1 & S47 lashes stacked.
